Hope Linae Norton, 23, of Marshall, passed away unexpectedly on October 20, 2021, at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, MI.
Hope was born on October 16, 1998, in Marshall, Michigan to Lynn and Jill (Eberhard) Newsome. She grew up in Marshall and was a member of the Marshall High School graduating class of 2017. She married Bailey on October 25, 2019, and they remained in Marshall.
Hope was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, foster parent, friend and helper to anyone and everyone needing anything at all! Born with the heart of an angel, Hope as a young child baked Cookies for Cancer and sold them to raise funds for her Uncle Layn that was battling cancer. Also, used her own money to purchase stuffed animals to share joy with children who required medical care in Oaklawn Hospital. That same angelic heart grew into becoming a foster parent and working kindly as a CNA for Senior Care Partners.
Hope will be missed beyond measure by her husband, Bailey; son, Kamryn; parents, Lynn and Jill Newsome; brother, Tucker Newsome; grandmother, Thelma Eberhard and anyone who ever knew her or had been touched by her loving kindness. She was preceded in death by grandparents, Chester and Tilda Newsome; grandfather, Donald Eberhard; aunts and uncles, Greta and Ron Caudill, Layn Newsome and Lori and Mark Waidelich.
